The purpose of this personal assessment is to devalue an incident in which I believe I performed my very best, within my leadership capability, according to organizational policies, and lawful regulatory compliance while protecting cultural competence and our organization from any legal repercussions. Business environment will continue evolve and it is pivotal to the success of the organization that all potential leaders acquire the fundamentals of understanding human behaviors within a multicultural atmosphere. Different situations will arise in which leadership will need to focus on the many aspects of one’s personal beliefs, culture as a whole, and productivity at the least. What is evident is the diversity within the business environment, perceptions, choices, and attitudes all play significant roles and contribute to issues within the working environment. Supervisors and managers are tasked with the many responsibilities of functionally operating a business, delegating responsibilities, and employee accountability, thus, leadership of today’s market must encompass a wide array of characteristics that parallel cultural diversity.

While reviewing the report, the information indicated that this situation occurred during an altercation between two employees, one in question, whom were arguing in front of other employees, apparently, a discriminative remark was made in which the employee filing the report was said to have made. The incident in question has placed me in a unique opportunity; as the facilitator of this situation would be best to approach this in a manner that would best benefit the organization, including my department. Although I am already conflicting within with personal and professional points of views, addressing the situation will become a challenge. Despite who initiated this situation or who escalated the situation, resolution must be determined in the best interest of communication within our environment.
